Alas. The leaders of the Hialeah Oi contingent come forth. Oi mate! Fuck those American wankers! Fuck the USA! Well... No accounting for brains but this poorly produced (sorry Dave--no matter whose fault it was) piece of trash ain't half bad and sort of appeals to my garage/noise-minded aesthetics. Actually, it sounds like how I would imagine S.S. DECONTROL soundin' after getting drunk for the first time. Funnier than the new Monty Python movie.
-Boz (from Suburban Relapse #10, September 1983)
This band is based in Florida, but they sound exactly like a British "skunk" group. Normally, that wouldn't be a cause for celebration, but these guys manage to pull it off by virtue of a fast tempo and an extremely raw, unprofessional sound. Although marred by phony English accents, this is actually better than the standard UK release.
